Angry Birds Gets Civil War Doc Makeover

“Angry Birds,” one of the most addicting iPhone apps ever created was given the Ken Burns treatment by Kansas City-based web developer Chris Riebschlager.

When not occupied by doing digital work for McDonald’s and Hostess, His idea for the video came out of hypothetical war letters Riebschlager posted on his blog, eventually giving way to “Letters From the Frontline” with Riebshlager himself providing all of the voice work. Admittedly, he is not a professional VO actor, which is probably why all of the birds sound the same. Still, isn’t it comforting to know that there are people out there as addicted to certain cell phone games as you are?

No longer do you have to feel self-conscious for being the only one of the bus/train looking busy texting but actually just throwing bird projectiles into pig-made fortresses. You’re not crazy, at least not as crazy as that guy from Kansas City who made a whole video about it, or at least not as crazy as I am for penning an entire orchestral composition devoted to “Bubble Breaker.”
